After Paul McCartney released an “urgent call to action” video last week for support of his Meat Free Monday environmental-awareness campaign ahead of Tuesday’s United Nations Climate Summit, the former Beatle has now released an original song for the cause with a little help from his friends.
The new theme song, simply titled “Meat Free Monday,” is a cheery sort of jingle tackling some of the Earth’s larger climate issues through the verses before returning to the chorus (everyone sing along now), “Meat Free Monday / it’s a fun day / and it’s happening all around the world.”
The accompanying lyric video includes some notable guests, as well as hundreds of other supporters of the cause, holding signs with with the song’s words on them. Among them are Woody Harrelson, Joanna Lumley, Twiggy, Fearne Cotton and Sharleen Spiteri of Texas.
Watch it here:
The video comes as a celebration of Meat Free Monday’s five-year anniversary. Most recently, the campaign has been focused on raising its pledge numbers in advance of the UN’s Climate Summit in order to pressure global leaders to commit to agree on a climate treaty for the COP 21 Conference in Paris next year.
